Today, the ACLU tweeted a photo of a toddler wearing a “Free Speech” onesie:

Screenshot 2017-08-23 16.03.19

and then the world came crashing down on their heads.

The ACLU has been fading relative to the SPLC for a long time. That’s because the SPLC is an overt hate group that sees virtually everything through the Who? Whom? lens. In contrast, the old-fashioned ACLU actually sometimes supports objective principles such as free speech.

In contrast, this is the future that SPLC donors seem to want:

Well, at least we stamped on the face of white supremacy and male chauvinism …

    No promises but I’m going to try and break out my checkbook this weekend!

  2. the old-fashioned ACLU actually sometimes supports objective principles such as free speech.

    TBH, I was shocked that the ACLU actually came out strongly in favor of free-speech rights immediately after C-ville. I didn’t think they still had it in them. (Of course, the California ACLU then ruined it with a fatuous “explanation” that was apparently intended to show that violent White Supremacists are still more badder than violent anti-White Supremacists: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2017/08/16/odd-statement-from-the-aclu-of-california-white-supremacist-violence-is-not-free-speech/?utm_term=.97f0dc8ff9d9 )

    And has the ACLU yet claimed that its Twitter feed has been hacked?

    Interestingly, this is the context of the post:

    “PSA: The future we want is babies in ACLU onesies. For more cute ACLU babies, follow us on Instagram! https://www.instagram.com/aclu_nationwide/ …”

    And this is their retreat:

    “ACLU National‏Verified account @ACLU 2h2 hours ago”

    “When your Twitter followers keep you in check and remind you that white supremacy is everywhere.”

    So, white baby, no place for you even AMONG the diversity parade!!

    What? The Statue of Liberty is green (corroded bronze). It's the Statute of Liberty, aka the US Constitution, that is white, with black writing on it. Well, hell it's yellow now.

    Let's not get so crazy about this whole race thing. From now on, all statues are equal! Any statue can be anywhere it wants to in New York City. Let's just make them all green, OK? Now, statues: Light green in the harbor, dark green in the basement of the FED.

  13. It’s a fact that discrimination results in a situation in which the majority of American babies are white. This imbalance must be rectified.

    Indeed, the very existence of majority white nations is prima facie evidence of racist discrimination because the majority of humans are non-white. Viva Zeroeth Amendment!

    How about the collapsed elite have no qualms inciting identity wars, including race, among the plebs? It explains why the wuss right insists on acting so much leftists. Pretending you're not a racist is the new absolute must groupthink of the elite class. That's the alt-right even exists. Honestly there's much keeping us together other than we speak freely about race.

    Which would explain why the secularized, highly Jewish by ethnicity media is freaking about the antisemitism they are encouraging by having us plebs all dissolve into DNA based groups. All the Jewish history floating in my head didn't come from reading TDS - just com boxes that got verified.

    Before identity politics became normal, I thought most Jews were like Mel Brooks and I never questioned their victim/Holocaust status. So two thumbs up there with awesome job on the public relations front.

    I assume they'll keep poking the bear because they can't stand poor Christian hillbillies. That hasn't ended well in the past but why not? They are above us.

  18. In his diary that was published, H.L. Mencken wrote about where he was planning to put his papers, writings and other materials for posterity. He planned on donating them to the Pratt Library in Baltimore. He then went on to say that he did not know how long they would last since at some point there is bound to be a revolution of some sort and they would be among the first things destroyed. He understood that his writings would piss off the wrong people and what was in his writings that were deposited, like his diary for example, would really cause a stir when they were opened. This would be especially true in a country, and I think that he may have had a premonition about this, where political correctness was the order of the day. With what is going on now, I wonder how long the Mencken Room at the Pratt Library, or the H.L. Mencken House in Baltimore will last?

    @Rohirrim Granted it's a video game, but the Fallout games take place far enough into the future where some of the sites can reasonably theorized to have been replaced at some point.

    Since Steve has seen fit to post another Fallout 3 picture, I figured I'd take this time to point out that game has the most un-PC mission in any game I've ever played (the Tenpenny Tower optional side mission). (And that's not to take anything away from the black slaver Eulogy Jones in the game)

    In this age of identity politics and associated stupidity, apparently no one has read Bartholdi's own words about the origins of “Liberty Enlightening the World.” Bartholdi talks at length about the “architectural” principles and engineering of Egyptian and Assyrian colossal sculpture, not about facial or bodily anatomy.

    https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=uc1.aa0016140931;view=1up;seq=29

    In a footnote (at the bottom of page 25, link above) to his discussion of Egyptian colossal sculpture he states unequivocally and even indignantly:

    *At this period, I was expecting to execute a statue of Egypt for the Suez Lighthouse. I even laid before Ismail Pacha a project. It was this that made an evilly disposed newspaper say, and others repeat, that I had executed a colossal statue for Egypt, which had not been used, and that I had resold it to the Society of the French-American Union in order that from it might be made the Statue of Liberty.

    Now, I never executed anything for the Khedive except a little sketch which has remained in his palace, and represents Egypt under the features of a female Fellah. Besides every one has seen the model of the Statue of Liberty made at Paris, and only evilly disposed persons are ignorant of what it has cost me. I have never answered these small cavilings, but I think that I ought to notice them on this occasion.
     
    "Fellah" has historically been translated as agricultural worker or villager as distinct from land owner and Fellah have been seen as the “original Egyptians.” The term fellahin has applied to Christian, Druze, Jewish and Muslim villagers. The interpretation of Fellah as “peasant” comes from the modern writings of Nur-eldeen (Nur) Masalha, a Palestinian writer and academic historian. (multiple Wiki citations)

    No where does Bartholdi mention the American Civil War or immigrants. No where do we find any reference to Liberty “Inviting” the World, the current definition of Lady Liberty.

    I'm not surprised. Obama's promiscuous mother bore and raised him as a bastard. Being a bastard is like carrying the Mark of Cain on your forehead. You don't fit in anywhere. It is a shitty way of finding your way through life. You have all of those identity issues. You have all of those resentments to work out. You have all of those slights that motivate you to seek revenge on your tormentors ... the chief one being your mother.

    Yes, Obama hates whites because he wasn't born white like his mother and his grandparents who raised him. He was born as "the other" and has spent a lifetime plotting his revenge.

I have never answered these small cavilings, but I think that I ought to notice them on this occasion.

    “Fellah” has historically been translated as agricultural worker or villager as distinct from land owner and Fellah have been seen as the “original Egyptians.” The term fellahin has applied to Christian, Druze, Jewish and Muslim villagers. The interpretation of Fellah as “peasant” comes from the modern writings of Nur-eldeen (Nur) Masalha, a Palestinian writer and academic historian. (multiple Wiki citations)

    No where does Bartholdi mention the American Civil War or immigrants. No where do we find any reference to Liberty “Inviting” the World, the current definition of Lady Liberty.

    With Obama it was personal. He hates white people.

    I’m not surprised. Obama’s promiscuous mother bore and raised him as a bastard. Being a bastard is like carrying the Mark of Cain on your forehead. You don’t fit in anywhere. It is a shitty way of finding your way through life. You have all of those identity issues. You have all of those resentments to work out. You have all of those slights that motivate you to seek revenge on your tormentors … the chief one being your mother.

    Yes, Obama hates whites because he wasn’t born white like his mother and his grandparents who raised him. He was born as “the other” and has spent a lifetime plotting his revenge.

    This little bastard seems happy enough, and her comments are worth a listen in re: the UK election:

    However, her parents were both White, and from what I can figure both entirely British in ancestry.
    (Mumsy had a Welsh mother- Delores Roberts, daughter of Irene Jones- and an English father AFAIK, though how they wound up Lutherans is a mystery.)

    Not really, no.

    Please consider that "bastard" is insult in almost every European language, especially and including English. Nobody ever came up an insult out of "adopted".

    Shakespeare, who seems to have seen everything a human is able to see about humanity, made a choatic villain out of a bastard. No explanation or motivation needed, which was quite different from most of his other antagonists.

    At any rate, if she raised as if they were married, that would be the same as the parents being married from her POV. I am all in wonder of these stable couples who play house for decades and refuse to get married, like that's how they claim "freedom".

    In his diary that was published, H.L. Mencken wrote about where he was planning to put his papers, writings and other materials for posterity. He planned on donating them to the Pratt Library in Baltimore. He then went on to say that he did not know how long they would last since at some point there is bound to be a revolution of some sort and they would be among the first things destroyed. He understood that his writings would piss off the wrong people and what was in his writings that were deposited, like his diary for example, would really cause a stir when they were opened. This would be especially true in a country, and I think that he may have had a premonition about this, where political correctness was the order of the day. With what is going on now, I wonder how long the Mencken Room at the Pratt Library, or the H.L. Mencken House in Baltimore will last?

    I have been to the latter. In my wisdom at 2am on a Saturday night.

    It has not lasted.

    @Hello
    Fallout 3?

    You know it, and the Super Mutants around there will wreck you good!

    Granted it’s a video game, but the Fallout games take place far enough into the future where some of the sites can reasonably theorized to have been replaced at some point.

    Since Steve has seen fit to post another Fallout 3 picture, I figured I’d take this time to point out that game has the most un-PC mission in any game I’ve ever played (the Tenpenny Tower optional side mission). (And that’s not to take anything away from the black slaver Eulogy Jones in the game)

  51. First, I have not read all the comments yet, so hopefully this is not some kind of repeat:

    Going back to the 1980′s, the ACLU, though leaning left, was a pretty fair organization, in my recollection. It seemed to stay dedicated to its principles, though it may not have taken up cases in which the right might have had good cause as much as the left (yeah, still discriminatory, but not overtly 1-sided). I remember that the ACLU defended a march of REAL (OK, at least THEY thought they were) Nazi’s in Skokie, Illinois – part of Chicago – I dunno). I knew lefties who criticized that, but I knew even then that free speech and assembly is more important than the feelings of others.

    Yes, the SPLC is nothing but a hate group, as you say, Steve. You’ve also mentioned the business sense of Morris Dees a lot, but I don’t care whether he makes a lot or a little – it’s still a sick, hateful way to do business. Were I at a corporate board meeting, I might say that the SPLC is “Best in Class” in “Hate-space”.

    What? The Statue of Liberty is green (corroded bronze). It’s the Statute of Liberty, aka the US Constitution, that is white, with black writing on it. Well, hell it’s yellow now.

    Let’s not get so crazy about this whole race thing. From now on, all statues are equal! Any statue can be anywhere it wants to in New York City. Let’s just make them all green, OK? Now, statues: Light green in the harbor, dark green in the basement of the FED.

  53. The (((ACLU))) used the antifa killed at Charlottesville as an excuse to cease its occasional defense of legally-armed White rights advocates.

    As club-swinging antifa degenerates (hurling containers of feces & urine) attacked, (((media))) flunkies conveyed their horror of the uppity Whites.

    Despite the very real threats to their lives (while law enforcement was cynically ordered to stand-down), NO ARMED PRO-WHITE PERSON FIRED A SINGLE SHOT!

    But never mind all that — the (((ACLU))) won’t defend violently-assaulted White people’s 1st Amendment right IF they exercise their 2nd Amendment right.

    SO WHAT if the deceased antifa was killed by a car, not a gun!

    The ACLU came up with its First Amendment absolutism back when the squeeze was mostly being put on the people they like (leftists, Marxists, pornographers, etc.). Now that the squeeze is mostly on the people they don’t like, I suspect that their ideological stance will change also. No more lawsuits to let Nazis march in Skokie. They will become the SPLC lite. The increasingly delusional and paranoid nature of their contributing and ideological base will accelerate the process.

    Several states have made FGM illegal and are persecuting Drs and parents involved.

    ACLU is defending FGM. ACLU wants FGM legalized under freedom of religion. ACLU claims the very word Christmas is a violation of separation of church and state but FGM should be legalized under freedom of religion.

    Most ACLU money came from Jews wanting to ban any references to Christmas. But once that goal was achieved, Jews sent their money to gay marriage, trans gender and SPLC, ADL etc that don’t bother to hide their hatred of Whites under constitutional principles.

    I understand that blonde baby with an American flag invoked cries of White supremacy neo nazism from ACLU’s beloved gays and non Whites.
